Landscape Architecture and Sustainability

What is a Landscape Architect?
Our world needs landscape architects more than ever. Landscape architects are the only profession with the theoretical and practical skills required to balance environmental and human needs successfully.

Only landscape architects have an education spanning ecology, botany, geology, urban planning, construction techniques and documentation to design and urban theory, ethics, and cultural resources.

Landscape architects examine, resolve and articulate better ways to live in our complex, fast-changing world. They advance our cities and safeguard our natural environments.

Landscape architects plan and design for life outside. Founded in 1966, the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects leads the profession in its mission to sustain people and place.
